Chippenham is to get its first “micropub” thanks to a letting recently completed by Huw Thomas Commercial.

The Prince of Wales Micropub will open at 8 Station Hill in the centre of Chippenham. Micropubs have become fashionable in recent years with local ones already open in Pewsey and Devizes. The new venture will be run by Tom Kyte, who is well known locally for his involvement with the local branch of the Campaign for Real Ale and being part of the organising committee for the annual Chippenham Beer Festival.

Huw Thomas comments “I am delighted to have been able ale to help Tom realise his dream of opening a new micropub in Chippenham. The letting is part of a rejuvenation that Station Hill is currently experiencing with new tattoo parlour and Thai massage parlour also having opened there recently. A planning application has also recently been submitted for a fish & chip shop in another vacant shop on the road“.
